We really do have a solution for all schools’ homework and teacher planner needs!

Posted on 22.02.2016 By Andrea Harrison

As a major supplier of school homework planners and teacher planners for over 20 years, we know there are two main types of planners that schools look to purchase:

1) “bespoke”, “branded”, “customised”, “tailored to exact needs”, “premium” “all singing and dancing” or
2) “generic”, “off the shelf”, “one style fits all” “budget” and, dare we say it “bog standard”

Pros and cons

Both of these school planner types have their own merits and “pros and cons” – but, it’s become a minefield to schools for what’s on offer in the world of homework and teacher planners. In less than 5 minutes you can probably request a dozen free sample packs from various school planner suppliers, all offering different features, benefits and special offers to grab your attention and your school’s planner business!

Here at we offer solutions for both types of school planners. In these financially challenging times, we appreciated that cost can be at the top of schools’ purchasing criteria – however, we believe in offering “best value” and “value for money” which means we consider cost along with other aspects such as quality, durability, creativity and a personal, friendly service.

To help you come to a decision on which school planner is most suitable for your school we recommend you ask yourself this question?

“what do we want our school planners to actually do?”


1) “bespoke”, “branded” “customised”, “tailored to exact needs”, “premium”

If your answer runs into a list of specific wants and needs then you’re looking at a bespoke school planner – a homework or teacher planner which totally fits the bill in terms of design, content and layout style to integrate with your school’s curriculum, daily lessons and home-school communications.

Our branded and bespoke school planner service is perfect for this type of planner. We work closely with our clients to understand them and their needs to create school planners which reflect their brand, goals, values and vision.


2) “generic”, “off the shelf”, “one style fits all” “budget” “bog standard”
